Please contact Michele for more information on Waterford and SuccessMaker Programs ONLY.
Title I schools provide reading and/or math intervention programs for eligible students. Students that score significantly below their grade level peers may be referred by their classroom teacher for diagnostic assessment and possible inclusion in Title I intervention programs.
Waterford and SuccessMaker are the Pearson Digital Curriculum Programs supported in Title I schools. These two researched-based programs provide supplemental support in math and reading in grades pre-k thru eight. This engaging digital curriculum supports core programs with explicit, individualized instruction that is aligned to current state and national standards. Waterford and SuccessMaker are approved Tier 1b and Tier II Response to Intervention programs.
How do Pearson SuccessMaker and Waterford computer based intervention programs help my child learn to read? These programs provide daily instructional activities to each child’s unique learning needs. Every objective in the curriculum has a minimum performance requirement and is ranked in difficulty. Assessment is continuous and teachers can access reports that will guide their instruction. Teachers and parents can easily monitor the progress of the student.
How many minutes per day should my student receive intervention support? The amount of time depends on the age of the student. Typically 15 minutes a day, five times a week for reading and 15 minutes for math. Not all students will be working in both areas.
What other types of support are available? User Group meetings are held 3-4 times a year to provide support and information. In Waterford, DVDs are available with songs and stories to enhance student learning. Small books are available to reinforce activities that are presented in the program and can be used for guided reading or take home. A take home aspect is available by using a backpack filled with books, a DVD and activities.
